 Dear Families,
 
   As you know this year, during our WOW celebration (Work on Writing) we had esteemed author Jerry Pallotta share his books with our children, with a focus on math in the real world. We will continue to dive deeper into our work with mathematics as it relates to the standards of mathematical practices, as well as the Common Core Standards. See below for a list of resources you and your children can use at home. Practicing math facts and playing math games at home can only strengthen your child's fluency.
                                                        Warmest Regards,
                                                             Mrs. Gray
